Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Yokohama Stadium to feature new Nissan billboard, all-electric Leaf as bullpen car

A Nissan Leaf electric car will be used as the bullpen car for baseball games at Yokohama Stadium in Japan, which will also feature a new Nissan billboard, from the 2017 season.

Nissan is returning to its hometown ballpark after almost two decades under a new sponsorship agreement with the Yokohama DeNA BayStars baseball team. The new billboard above the scoreboard will display the message, ‘EVs made with Nissan technology.’ New signs will also be installed on the lighting towers.

Nissan cars including the Be-1 and S-Cargo were used as bullpen cars at Yokohama Stadium in the 1990s. Starting this spring, the 100% electric Leaf, featuring zero CO₂ emissions, will represent Nissan Intelligent Mobility as it supports relief pitchers taking the mound.

“We are very pleased to be returning to Yokohama Stadium, which is a symbol of the city where Nissan was founded,” said Nissan senior vice president Asako Hoshino. “We are excited to support the BayStars, who are set to deliver a strong performance this year, through this sponsorship program.”
